He also explains why the Jets traded for Brett Favre -
"Woody Johnson and the Jets took a shot with Brett Favre, took a shot with him the way Favre himself took big shots, sometimes crazy, reckless shots, down the field his whole football career," wrote Lupica. "They took a shot on him the way teams kept taking a shot on Roger Clemens at the end. Mostly they took a shot because they had no choice, because they were the Jets."
Yes, they are the Jets. That is their name.
